A Nice Work
First of all I want to give a big thanks to the creator of this space. Until now I couldnÂ´t belive that such a beatifull work was in progress for that a long time.
With respect to Elliot Carte, I have to confess that I am a big fan of his music, I studied his book on harmony and have enjoyed most of his works is a central figure in XX Century music.
This documental has been a nice surprise for me and I recomend it for all lovers of XX century music
